Nike Hyperdunk Low Urban Prep PE

While most Basketball sneaker PE posts are centered around performance on the court, this Urban Prep Nike Hyperdunk Low PE post is about performance in the classroom. Founded in 2002, Urban Prep is a charter school in Englewood (Chicago) that accepts “all comers” in one of Chicago’s most beleaguered neighborhoods. Most, if not all, students that are accepted as Freshman into Urban Prep exhibit significant academic deficiency. According to the [Chicago Tribune] this year’s Urban Prep Senior class though, reached an amazing goal considering the circumstances. All 107 of the school’s graduating Seniors were accepted into college 72 different colleges, a graduation and acceptance rate of 100%. To that, we say congratulations.

The Urban Prep Nike Hyperdunk Low PE itself features a Black based upper with Yellow accents in the Flywire and around the Swoosh, the Urban Prep crest on the tongue, and an icey outsole that features specks of Gold.
